Advice, how to start catalogizing 35k of pictures?
Aug 10, 2012

Dear all,

I have some 35k of pictures with no key words data and just filed in folders as year-month-date-subject, and now i am thinking that i should start putting keywords on all for easier finding (a nightmare today to find older pictures if i dont remember where and when i took it)

I have both CS6 and Lightroom but tend to still only use CS6 with Bridge

I guess there is no shortcut rather than start from folder one, and then add proper keywords and then move to next folder and next... This will take some time for sure

Still not very familiar with Lightroom, but i understand this would be the preferred software for this, or would Bridge do it equally good?

Further i have some 20k older pictures that are in my iPhoto/aperture folder. This will be next task, any advice on how to simply intergrate these into my lightroom (or bridge)?

Cheers in advance

Kari
